military, politics, propaganda, religion
aipac, israel, j street
I’ve found in my travels much the same that Craig Murray has found:
I have traveled this world much more extensively than either Obama or Romney, and I still do. I find everywhere, even in areas of conflict and economic difficulty, the vast majority of people are friendly, even kind, and have very similar aspirations, across cultures, to personal development and emotional fulfilment.
The striking thing about tonight’s US Presidential “foreign policy” debate, is when it did occasionally discuss foreign policy, the world out there was discussed not as a place of vast potential, but as a deeply disturbing place full of foreigners who are, apparently, all evil except the Israelis, who are perfect.
The vast benefits from cooperation and trade with “abroad” were not mentioned once that I noticed (though I confess the thing was so awful my attention wandered occasionally). Europe apparently doesn’t exist, other than Greece which is nothing more than a terrible warning of the dangers of not being right wing enough.
The correct attitude to all these foreigners that God so unfortunately and inexplicably placed on this planet, is apparently to maintain incredibly large armed forces, murder people with drones (they were both very enthusiastic on this one), place sanctions on them and declare them “currency manipulators”. The only surprising note was that both agreed that they could not kill everyone in Iran.
But “We can’t just kill our way out of this mess” was spoken with regret, rather than as an affirmation of the possibilities of cooperation instead. What a grim and joyless world view.
Fear sells war. Sending fear via mass communications amplifies this fear and amplifies war profits. Fear sells a lot of other stuff, too, but by far the worst is what genocides a million Iraqis through depleted uranium usage or starves thousands of Iranians through food embargoes.

iran, israel, stop ww3
Rivero’s on fire. Predictably, the Megaphone IDF keyboard brigade is going apeshit trying to run cover. I’m pasting Rivero’s commentary in full because there’s so much traffic on WRH and I think this really needs to have light shed on it.
Major embarrassment for Netanyahu!
Update: The comments on the source article are loaded up with “Megaphony” comments bashing the US, bashing Iran, and pushing the Israeli agenda.
Netanyahu plays chess!
The fact that nobody walked out on Ahmadinejad has sent a clear message to Netanyahu that the days when Israel could demand other nations send their children to war with Israel’s enemies are numbered. Netanyahu has played gambit after gambit after gambit and finds himself checkmated. Nuclear threat didn’t play after the Iraq debacle. Red lines did not work. Tinkering with the US election did not work. AIPAC did not work.
Netanyahu must be feeling checkmated right about now, leaving his only remaining play as “knee to corner of board”, i.e. a false-flag attack. Except of course, that is what everyone is expecting Netanyahu to be considering right now, which means it is a risky gambit not likely to reverse Israel’s situation.
Netanyahu must be throwing a tantrum right about now, He grew up politically in a climate where whatever Israel wanted, Israel got; money, American kids to throw onto the bayonets of Israel’s enemies, etc. Netanyahu is not a man used to dealing with failure. In many ways he is a spoiled child, spoiled by decades of US acquiescence to Israel’s will and because of the US, other nations also bowed to Tel Aviv. The US envoys have sent a very clear diplomatic message to the rest of the UN that they no longer back Israel’s demands for more war.
A rational man would topple his King and admit defeat, but Netanyahu may not be rational. He may stage a false-flag. He may just go ahead and attack Iran’s power station. He may, out of pure spite, blow the whistle on who really did 9-11, confident that the revelations will harm the US Government more than it will harm Israel. Such deceptions are, after all, what Israel is famous for. It’s expected!
But one thing is certain, Bibi will probably in one form or another hit the panic button to get his war with Iran before Israel’s October elections.

aipac, false flag, insanity, iran, israel, not in our name, unjust war, warmongers
Putting aside the reality that the Zionist coalition has been actively at “warm” war with Iran and Syria for the last several years, after learning today that Canada closed its Iranian embassy and with Stratfor reporting that a 3rd aircraft carrier is being prematurely ordered back to the Persian Gulf, it’s looking like the Iran hot war is about to get going. Consider that the global economy is sputtering and spinning, with gold hitting 7-month highs and the American public increasingly frustrated and desperate, and we finally have the formula for a false-flag attack followed by a grossly illegal, immoral, unethical and plain insane preemptive “response”. God help us.
It’s so sad to see such pleasant, polite, considerate, intelligent, cultured and peaceful people such as the Canadians be so easily hoodwinked by the international bankster Zionist cabal and their Canadian puppets in the Harper administration.
Update: Alexander Higgins blogs about a military report stating the obvious, that the Iran strike force will need to be bigger than the Afghanistan and Iraq operations combined. Der. It will need to be a LOT bigger. The only reason Iraq was able to stave off the waves of Iranians coming into Iraq during their war in the 1980s was the chemical weapons the US and I think Germany and France sold them. Saddam had a rather impressive army at the time, too. The Persians, in contrast with the cultural polyglot that is Iraq, are unified on cultural and religious grounds. Plus, they will be defending their country which has been around for 1000s of years. US forces will need a MINIMUM of 3:1 superiority and ideally 10:1.
